Strategic Partner Programme

At EIDA, our vision is for every employer to take effective action on domestic abuse. Join us to change workplace culture, tackle domestic abuse, and change lives.

Become an EIDA Strategic Partner and help us provide resources and share learnings with employers across the UK, particularly smaller organisations who would not otherwise have the resources or budget to implement their own workplace domestic abuse response.

If you wish to become a Strategic Partner, contact Ayesha Fordham, Membership and Partnerships Manager at


Paying it forwards

The EIDA Strategic Partner programme provides an opportunity for larger employers to leverage their scale and expertise, “paying it forward” to smaller employers, whilst also fulfilling some of their own environmental, social and governance (ESG) objectives.

Small and Medium-Sized Enterprises (SMEs) account for around three-fifths of employment in the UK private sector. However, EIDA hears regularly of the challenges posed by a lack of resources and funding, preventing many SMEs from recognising and responding to domestic abuse. EIDA Strategic Partners’ contributions will enable us to develop a range of materials for SMEs and support them with the resources they need to implement an effective domestic abuse response.

Our Strategic Partners

Lady Lucy French OBE, CEO, Fleet Street Quarter BID

“Fleet Street Quarter BID are enormously proud to be a founding Strategic Partner of EIDA. As a Business Improvement District, representing over 350 businesses in the western side of the City of London, we are encouraging the businesses we support, both large and small, to implement best practice domestic abuse policies developed by EIDA to safeguard workforces. By allowing conversation and change within the workplace to happen, we can help tackle this nationwide epidemic affecting 1 in 4 women and 1 in 6 men. The time to act is now and we would advise businesses to consider their internal policies, utilising the fantastic support of EIDA".
